Description of problem:
Internally, it works and connects to IMAP dovecot. When it is hit externally, it throws the IMAP connection refused error. I've tried all types of things, hard-coding a imapServerAddress for example. The really crazy part is I can't get that value show up changed in the error message displayed by squirrelmail. Regardless of what set imapServerAddress, I always see
Error connecting to IMAP server: 127.0.0.1.
111 : Connection refused
I've tried /src/configtest.php, tried hardcoding a new imapServerAddress there at the fsocketopen call, still get the same
ERROR: Error connecting to IMAP server "127.0.0.1:143".Server error: (111) Connection refused
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Login to squirrelmail from outside the local IP range
2. ERROR: Error connecting to IMAP server "127.0.0.1:143".Server error: (111) Connection refused
Actual Results: ERROR: Error connecting to IMAP server "127.0.0.1:143".Server error: (111) Connection refused
Expected Results: user logged in, go about their squirrelmailing
Using dovecot.i386 0.99.14-4.fc4 for IMAP
Is this a bug, or am I not configuring one of these services correctly? I
haven't heard anything from anyone, so I'm starting to wonder. If it is likely
a configuration problem on my part please let me know so I can try fixing it
myself. At this point I'm sorry I moved to core 4, because it looks like its
still a bit dicey. Is there a better alternative for webmail that I can yum or
rpm install real quick?
Other people are using it with no problem, so it is likely a configuration problem.
There is another issue that squirrelmail really sucks, it has many bugs and
seems to be at a near standstill upstream. I am personally looking to have it
replaced and removed from a future Fedora.
If you want a really nice web based e-mail suite, try looking at zimbra.com. It
is much more complicated than squirrelmail though, so it is a big question mark
right now whether we would ever be able to import it. It itself is the entire
mail server or something. Kind of scary.
I was fubar the entire time. I was being redirected by the router to a
depricated server with the same name. Doh!
Thanks for your reply, it set me straight
I'm marking this notabug
